Touch in Sol | Mascara + duo chrome eyeshadow

mascara1.12

Hi Lovelies,

K- beauty have really been trending this year in makeup + skincare, trying new brands gives me an idea of what to look forward to with brands & products, well the brand I’ve reviewed recently is touch in sol. 

Touch in sol is a Korean brand, that was founded in Seoul, Korea. This particular brand creates affordable, fun beauty that showcases a variety from skincare to cosmetics. The brand develops products infused with natural botanical ingredients that are cruelty-free.

I have tested out 2 products from their inclusive line; first is a Voluminous mascara & the other is a dual duo-chrome eyeshadow.

Stretchex stretch lash effect mascara

The Stretchex mascara is a volume infused mascara; enriched with silk protein to protect and elongate the lashes. I love this mascara the formula is not heavy & doesn’ t contain a lot of wax, no one wants spider lashes, this is a very build-able mascara, which you can manipulate how thick you want your lashes. The wand is curved and able to get each individual lash. The application is very beauty and the lash wear is impressive. I know we all been through the moments of taking off makeup, and the process can be long, but this mascara comes off with no problem; using something light like Baby oil, or Urban decay meltdown makeup remover gets it off super fast! super easy. This mascara is $22 USD, which falls in the price range of luxury brands. Now, is the product a bit expensive? yeaahhh, but like luxury brands, you question whether you’re paying for product or brand, in this case it’s both. K- beauty is a highly favored brand now a days, but as far as the product itself, it works as it advertise.

Metallist liquid foil & glitter duo shadow

Let’s chit chat on this product, liquid shadows have been the Gag! of the world of eyeshadow; and when you think about every brand jumped on the band wagon to create them from L’Oreal to Stila cosmetics, & K- beauty has joined the crew. Touch in sol have created foil/glitter duo shadows coming in various shades. The shades come in 9 different shades( swatched below) and the one I got to try was the shade Eldora, which was a pigmented Gold shimmer and a pressed gold foil.

I really love the shade it’s really gold and creamy when applying, it does dry out a bit when blending, but as an all over shadow it works. The shadow has an angled doe foot  applicator, which allows a lot of manipulation in how much product is applied, so that’s definitely an advantage. The foil side has a flat spatula applicator to pack on the product, I really like this, just enough product comes out, but the fallout is so crazy, friendly warning! I would just say be careful, so glitter doesn’t get in your eye. I really like this shadow duo, it’s price is $24 USD, which is again a luxury price range, but you’re getting 2 shadow choices for the price.

So what you think about K-beauty, have you tried the brand? Will you be trying the duo shadows? If so, “like” this post and “comment” if you love K’beauty……….

ISSA W I G !!

Loves,

How many times have you looked in the mirror and have been overwhelmed with what to do with it? Lace front wigs have dominated the world of hair, when you want to change your hair another color, style, or trying out a short do, this is the route to go. 

Lace front wigs, are wigs that are naturally sewn into a lace base that protects your hair, but giving the illusion of a natural appearance. Wigs naturally have the properties of protecting damaged hair, as well as, healthy hair growth. This is the #1 go- to of protective hairstyles. Wearing a lace front wig stretch over the entire head, while a the front of the lace is and blended in with our natural hair, giving you a natural hairline. Lace front wigs can be manipulated just like real hair, you’re able to cut, curl, style, and color it to what your preference is all why keeping your hair from harm.

Lil Kim, Zendaya, Rihanna, Cardi B, have all rocked lace fronts, and stays on trend, as well as style icons. Best hair Buy, provides various types of lace fronts whether it is full coverage or lace frontal, so what’s the difference between the two? Besthairbuy Lace front wigs, have a sheer lace panel in the front, that the hair is sewn in, and allows you to have a naturally blended hairline, so SIS if you like the FKA Twig baby hair look, then this is for you. A full lace frontal wig is constructed with a lace cap that covers the entire head, and allow movement and styles, that means if you like braiding, and parting your hair, this will give it a natural looking part in the crown area & lace closure. Full lace fronts allows ponytails, braids, top knots, etc.

See any thing you Like? Here are the various lace front wigs. The colorful hair colors are synthetic lace front wigs ( the 2 at the end), compared to the human hair lace fronts, synthetic hair is nothing like it, synthetic hair is wayyyy cheaper, and though it comes in more hair colors, for those who like to switch it up daily, you have to take care of these specific wig types. Synthetic hair can’t take as much heat as human hair, & the hair is not natural, so it tangles and knots up really fast.

I hope you enjoyed this post, leave some love, be sure to “LIKE” this post, and tell which do you like Synthetic wigs, or lace frontal human hair? Be sure to visit the Besthairbuy website, if you liked any of the products, or want to learn more about hair in general.

Hair changes!! Everyone has experienced going short, dying it, the BIG CHOP! I can say that keeping your hair healthy is just as much of a routine as skincare. How many times have you searched google for ” How to get longer Hair?” or ” Best hair remedies?” I can say I type these searches in countless of times, and while there are truths behind some remedies, some remain a myth. The one remedy that does my hair justice every single time is the massaging treatment. 

Massaging, is the method of allowing blood flow to your scalp while also stimulation for new growth. I have talked about my hair scares, and damage for the past 4 years, and still in the process of growing, my hair has finally been restored to its natural state, healthy and new. For the years of dedication to get back my healthy hair I have been using Biotin, numerous oils, and my Groove massaging brush for stimulation.

The Groove Scalp Massaging Brush

Vanity Planet sent me the Groove Scalp Massaging brush to review, I have to say receiving any product from Vanity Planet is exciting, but this particular product I was anxious about trying. Here are my thoughts!

The Groove Scalp Massaging brush, is a water resistant scalp cleanser that relieves hair of dead skin cells and rejuvenates the scalp to promote healthy hair growth. The scalp massaging brush have an option to vibrate, while massaging, or you can leave it off, but the vibrating motion, allows blood flow and really gives your scalp a deep cleanse. Because of its water resistance, this allows you to use this scalp brush in the shower, the rubber bristles allows to remove gross dirt & oil, all while opening your pores, for fresh; new hair.

Maybelline New York- BUYS

lipstickkk167

Hi Lovelies 

Maybelline New York, has to be one of the best makeup brands, like right?

I recently brought a few of their mattes and metallic shades from their Colorsensational line, here are some swatches for your enjoyment, because I will be back with many more.

lipstickkk11

Maybelline has always killed it, with the formulas for their products, and I admit they have improved 10 fold, since I purchased my first product from them. When it comes to lipstick I look at every detail there is, smell, is it worth my shmoney, packaging, how long will it last, can I eat pizza and not look like a gremlin after ( Hi, i’m a Virgo). OKAY ENOUGH RAMBLING!!

I recently purchased some of their lippies half metallic, half matte. When it comes to metallic lip products, sometimes the shades show up as iridescent rather than metallic, so I was a bit anxious of how they would look. I brought Copper Rose ( Deep Red-Orange), Molten Bronze ( Brown w/ green iridescent) and Hot Lava ( Bright Crimson Red w/ yellow shimmer). The shades are very gorgeous, when gliding it over my lips and swatching the shades, it doesn’t apply tacky, the application is very creamy and rich.

The next shades are the matte colors I purchased in Concrete Jungle ( Brick grey), Rebel Pink ( fuschia ), and Sapphire Siren ( Blue). I love a comfortable matte, which is why most of my makeup collection consist of liquid lipsticks, but some matte(s) can be rough and tug when applying. The 3 shades that I brought, apply nice, before application, I did a lip scrub and removed dead skin cells, so that the shades would not look rough, and it helped. The matte shades last for a while, I’m not going to exaggerate and say it last all day, but through a cup of coffee, until lunch it lasted, and even after left a stain, which wasn’t bad.

Overall, I loved the shades I purchased, they all have very great pigment, and apply without tugging and pulling on my lips. I think the metallic shades have better quality formula as far as, pigment and applying smoothly.

I hope my Lovelies, have enjoyed my quick review, if so “LIKE” this post and tell me what is better Liquid lipsticks or Classic lipstick? Let me know in the comments

Becca |#BECCAbrighteyes

Hi Lovelies,

So if you’ve taken college classes, morning, noon, or night; you know the feeling, of not being energized and having to survive on that early cup of starbucks, but Becca cosmetics has provided a 3 step eye trick that will give us that trying-not- trying bright eye look.

becca.1

Influenster sent out a bunch of Becca bright eye boxes, for us beauty bloggers and enthusiasts to try and I was super excited. Of course, a new product hits the shelf, the first thing I do, do my research on youtube. 

After ransacking the internet, here’s what I found out.

Becca.6

#BECCAbrighteyes comes with 3 products;

Becca Anti Fatigue eye primer

This under eye primer is meant for not only smooth application, but helps fight fatigue, and reduce the appearance of fine lines. The first step, prep and prime the skin before concealer. The product is infused with Antioxidant, and green tea, which leaves the skin with a natural glow, and smooth feeling. This product retails for $32, and comes in a hand held compact. 

The anti fatigue primer, feels so smooth to the touch, I feel that the price is a little pricey, for the size, but the product itself is worth it. 

Becca.8Becca.3

Becca Bright eye Corrector

The corrector is concealer that neutralizes dark under eye circles. This retails for $32. 

The bright eye corrector is the 2nd step to achieving #BECCAbrighteye look. This concealer is creamy, and laid over the primer achieves a natural look, without creasing into your “designer bags” I really think the concealer works well, but I’m sure you can find any concealer that will work well.

BECCA bright eyes Setting Powder

Setting the face is the final step…almost there! After priming and concealing, time to set the eyes, to be sure your eyes do not crease throughout the day. The setting powder is very fine, which doesn’t cause chunky product to ruin the look. The setting powder is enriched with Raspberry stem cells, and Australian berries, that will give you that healthy boost of energy in the skin. The setting powder retails for $25.  

After using all 3 products I think the products work really well together, the price you’ll be paying for the entire kit is $89, Wheww, thank goodness for free samples. But I think you can find similar products for much cheaper, I recommend all products, but I think the star product is the primer.

I hope you enjoyed this post, if you like reviews/posts be sure to “LIKE” and “COMMENT” Also have you tried the #BECCAbrighteye 3 step kit, if so let me know.

These complimentary samples were provided by Influenster for review, all opinions were my own.
